ENViFACiLiTATE Task 2Requirements and Guidelines for Compatible Environmental Information Facilities


Task 2 in project proposal

  • “Assessing the implications and obligations of international environmental initiatives where information sharing is concerned.”

  • “Identifying the best practices and relevant standards for the establishment of environmental information facilitating mechanisms.”

  • “Identifying the practical needs and requirements of the various anticipated user groups.”


Current structure

1. Introduction

2. Data needs of environmental initiatives

3. Review of data exchange initiatives

- metadata focus

- focus on harmonisation and interoperability

- focus on data and service sharing

4. Inter-linkakes between initiatives

5. Practical guidelines

6. Annexes


Task 2 in project proposal

  • “Assessing the implications and obligations of international environmental initiatives where information sharing is concerned.”

  • “Identifying the best practices and relevant standards for the establishment of environmental information facilitating mechanisms.”

  • “Identifying the practical needs and requirements of the various anticipated user groups.”


Reviewed initiatives

Initiatives with data requirements

- ICZM, Water framework directive, Kyoto/Climate change, Habitats directive & Natura 2000 network

Global umbrella initiatives

- GSDI, GEOSS

Technically oriented initiatives

- ISO/TC211, OGC, Euref


Reviewed initiatives

Spatial data infrastructure initiatives

- INSPIRE

- Finnish, Estonian and Latvian NSDI strategies and other

initiatives aimed at NSDI building

- FGDC & US NSDI

Related European initiatives

- eEurope, eContentplus

Environmental initiatives

- GMES, Eionet

Thematic initiatives

- Biodiversity: CBD-CHM, GBIF, ENBI

- Climate/weather: ?? (FMI's contribution)

- Something else, geology perhaps?


Reviewed initiatives: Scale of Action

Example: OGC

"OGC is a non-profit, international, voluntary consensus standards organization"

- Global organisation but it is working in very USA orientated manner


Initiatives with data requirements

"We will have identified the practical needs and requirements of the different user groups of the environmental information at national to local levels."

- Interviews were put aside, and they were

absorbed into the project partners'

participation to the document preparation

- Instead, the data requirements of various

environmental initiatives was planned to

identify

- However, this is already reviewed in the

INSPIRE Work Programme


Links between the initiatives


Critical evaluation

  • More focus on data sharing initiatives than on user needs

  • No true interviews were conducted, but other ways of communication were

  • Classification of initiatives included compromises

  • Less links to local/regional level

  • Comments?


Proposed responsibilities

UTU: Coordinative responsibility

SYKE:Reviewing the data requirements of ICZM and

revising the environmental initiatives

FMI: Reviewing and pinpointing the initiatives in

their field of expertise

RCSF: Reviewing the possibilities of integrating

regional services into national infrastructure

EEIC:Reviewing the state of Estonian NSDI activity

UL:Reviewing the state of Latvian NSDI activity
